Horses' eyes are extremely delicate. Any abnormality of the eye should be treated as an emergency. The treatment of ocular conditions can vary from the owner instilling medication into the eye a few times a day all the way up to hospitalization with the use of a subpalpebral lavage system (SPLs). SPLs can be used when horses are disagreeable to having their eyes worked on and when medications have to be given at high frequencies. A SPL can be used in our hospital or on the farm, but requires careful monitoring and use. 

Most common eye problems:

  • Corneal ulcers

  • Squamous cell carcinoma

  • Uveitis

  • Eyelid lacerations

  • Keratitis

Remember eye problems are always an emergency! Call us immediately if you notice something is wrong with your horses’ eyes (336)-998-7131 or (336) 998-7130 after hours.
